We can offer you a plethora of interesting sights with our cycling tour around the Untersee. The tour begins with a relaxed trip by train or ship to Constance, where you'll continue along the Swiss shoreline. It's worth making a short detour to Gottlieben am Seerhein on the first leg of the trip. In Mannenbach the route climbs a little, bringing you to Arenenberg with its lovingly furbished Napoleon museum. The route brings you through Steckborn and on to the mediaeval town Stein am Rhein. Circumnavigating the artists' peninsular Höri, you'll continue on to Radolfzell, where you can enjoy a little shopping in the old part of town. From Radolfzell, there's an hourly train service back to Friedrichshafen.
